LOKA Creative launched in 2012 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and soon expanded with an office in Albuquerque. In 2019, the Dallas, Texas, office was founded.  LOKA has been serving clients across the southwest, south, west, and midwest regions ever since. Our area of focus is government, municipalities, public utilities, and nonprofit organizations—but we have a collection of small- to medium-sized businesses who have entrusted their brands to us. Together, we build great partnerships.

LOKA has a proven ability to develop integrative community marketing campaigns that drive participation by reaching the audience in context with the method and message most likely to inspire action. We love smart strategy, and we’re not afraid to try something new. LOKA loves doing it all, from strategizing your social media presence to creating a great brand to carrying out your daily social media strategy and public relations plan for you. We understand difficult markets and have developed ways of working that are sharply focused yet agile. This means that we deliver value-loaded work-for-hire for our clients in a timely and cost-effective way.

Let’s tell your story.
